Mediation for the Cultural Community


The past several years, we have been made aware of a number of disagreements not only internally between members of the cultural community, but also between music venues and neighbors; buskers and businesses; artists and performers.  Mediation will provide individuals an opportunity to discuss their issues with each other in a facilitated session by a neutral third party, with the goal of reaching a legal or non-legally binding resolution to the issue.  To offer this service, we have partnered with Community Mediation Services (CMS).  MaCCNO will not only refer interested parties to CMS, we will also cover the initial registration fee, provide follow up as needed, and, if requested, will attend the session.  However, we only offer this service to individuals, we do not provide mediation for issues involving law enforcement or city ordinances/agencies.
